Kids and QS at Quantified Self Conferences: Bill Schuller

June 25, 2018

To beat potential Summer boredom, hopefully this next highlighted project from Bill Schuller will give some inspiration. Bill Schuller presented QS Adventures with my Kids at the 2013 QS Global Conference in the Presidio, San Francisco. Bill started tracking his exercise and weight in 2010. His preschool-aged son, began to imitate Bill’s tracking behavior by regularly stepping on the scale, not to watch his weight, but to just check his numbers. Bill then designed tracking games for his son. One of them involved putting things away in the house while tracking steps and gaining “clean-up points.” In this talk, he shares more stories about how he and his children play with self-tracking.
